Do you ever play without your starter?

    My friend got me thinking when he said that whenever he plays Yellow he always deposits his Pikachu. So have you ever played through a game without your starter?

    I never have, but I would like to try sometime.

    Yeah, Black and White actually.

    Always, but only the main story, B2 will be my first time without it.

    Only in my Black version did I play without my starter. I usually always do because I love whichever starter I choose.
    But for this new Gen I didn't like any starter enough to actually use it beyond getting my C-Gear

    Like a few people before me...Black and White, 2nd playthrough. I did not like using Oshawott that much >.< I used Emboar and really liked it. Oshawott? Not so much. ><

    I usually use my starters. The only time I haven't is when my Meganium died in my HG Nuzlocke...

    Come to think of it, I haven't touched my Samurott since beating White, which was a while ago.

    The story? No, but I usually deposit post-story for training purposes.

    Yes, mostly. Only reason i use the starter is to get me through the game for the first time, then i'll just bank it or realese it.
  11. I always use all three starters in my original runthrough of a game, ie: get both games, start witth he one i want and transfer the other two. I've been doing that since Emerald, but after my first runthrough i barely ever use a starter, unless im doing it for fun like using Treeko, Oshawatt and Typhlosion together for a unique combo. Normally i do have a favorite pokemon of any runthrough like Venipede who i treat as my starter for that runthrough.

    The only time I didn't was SoulSilver. Other than that game, I've always had at least one starter on my team. (Lucky for me, my friend and his friend happened to have a Tepig and Oshawott).

    I usually use them until I beat the Elite Four for the first time.

    No, I always use the starter for my team.

    The only case in which I haven't used my Starter is in a random game of Ruby. I used nothing but Swellow. It was actually pretty cool, but I didn't get through the whole game (ironically I'd just beaten Winona when I had to abandon it).

    Let's face it, the starters are awesome. It's just not a good idea to not use such a powerful asset.

    Yes. Done it a lot with the pass games, and plan to do it with Black 2/White 2. I replay the games a lot, it eventually gets boring using the starter all the time for me.

    Never! I like Snivy too much ^_^

    Yeah. I did on my most recent heartgold run, I used six eeveelutions instead, and most games, my starter gets boxed not long after beating the game.

    I like to play the game with different pokemon. So after I've played it three times, the fourth time wont have a starter. They're not essential parts of the game.
